Friday Practice

Tony Kanaan, #44 McDonald's Honda-Reynard - 6th Fastest Overall:

"On the last lap of the session, the engine failed in the middle of the corner and I hit the wall. The right front suspension was damaged, but we should be able to run that car tomorrow. It's hard to know with everyone running in the draft, but I believe we have a good car for the race. I don't think we are the fastest out there right now, but the car is not bad."
